eBlast Production Requirements

Email blast content in HTML format 
The best practice is if you host this on a back/hidden page of your/your client’s website and send us the link. That makes the images appear correctly since they are most likely coming from your server). It should help the design team to know that we use the Constant Contact platform.
If you are unable to design/host your eBlast graphics on your own, ATCA will not be able to design this in HTML for you.
However, you may provide us with:
• A plain text headline – up to 45 characters will work. Short and scannable helps with the email title.
• Body copy – There is no limit to body copy, but generally people won’t want to scroll too much. 3- 4 paragraphs work, also a bullet point list in the middle is effective.
• A header image at 600 pixels wide, 300 dpi, and we will upload this into Constant Contact
Subject Line
Please give us an eye-catching subject line to use for the eBlast.
Email address 
We do not need and email address from you for the email blast - The email will send from our email vendor, Constant Contact. The ATCA email will appear in the “From” field, and we will note that we are sending it on your behalf.
Physical/Street Address of your Company

(We need your address, as this is required by our email server for anti-spam laws).

    Hon. Linda Hall Daschle Named 2018 Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award Winner

    The Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) is pleased to announce that former FAA Acting Administrator Linda Hall Daschle has been selected as the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, one of the most prominent awards in aviation and ATCA’s highest honor.

    A pioneer for women in air traffic management, Daschle was the first female to hold the post of Acting Administrator for the FAA. She began her aviation career in Kansas nearly 45 years ago as a licensed weather observer for the agency. In 1993, she was nominated by President Clinton and confirmed by the US Senate for the position of FAA Deputy Administrator. One of her first tasks involved an assessment of the agency’s key air traffic modernization program called the Advanced Automation System which was eventually overhauled, saving the agency an estimated $1.6 billion. She also oversaw the advancement of new regional airline safety regulations and conducted a review of the agency’s safety and surveillance program, which resulted in one of the single largest hires of new safety inspectors in FAA history. 

    Ms. Daschle has held numerous government and private-sector leadership positions, including with the American Association of Airport Executives, the Air Transport Association, the former Civil Aeronautics Board, and with the law firm of Baker Donelson. She is currently President of LHD & Associates, Inc, and serves on the board of Aireon, LLC.

    In accepting the Glen A. Gilbert Memorial Award, Ms. Daschle joins aviation greats, including Delta’s Richard Anderson, NATCA President Paul Rinaldi, the Hon. Jane Garvey, Boeing’s Neil Planzer, former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, and pilot A. Scott Crossfield. (View press release HERE.)

    Tickets will be available this month. For more information, visit

    Established in Washington, D.C., in 1956 by a group of air traffic controllers, the Air Traffic Control Association has been from the outset dedicated to progress in the science of air traffic control and the preservation of a safe flight environment.
